Guide to Buy Best Smartphones on Amazon and Flipkart
1. Look for Older Model Smartphones
If you are planning to purchase a flagship smartphone or even a mid-range phone, always look for a previous model of the current phone. Usually, the newer models or latest versions do not come with much improvement in terms of performance and you can get the same features in the previous year’s model at a much lower price.
For example- Samsung has launched Galaxy S21 series in India and in Flipkart’s ongoing ale you can get the Galaxy S21+ at a whooping price of Rs. 81,999. However, if you go for last year’s Galaxy S20+, it is being sold at only Rs. 44,999, and both phones have very much similar features.
2. Set Your Preferences
You should also know about your preferences while purchasing a smartphone. Different people have different priorities such as some look for better battery life, some for a better camera, and some look for a clean user interface. When you know your preferences, you can directly go for a phone and you will have to choose from limited options.
